They are blind

They see no love

No blood

They cannot comprehend


The warmth of a hug

The squeeze of your hand

Rosy cheeks

The heat of our laughs


Miles hold

Only distance against us

Time and a little money

But it cannot separate

Those who live within us


These treasured ones will stay

Others will move along


Our hearts will be tested

Experience longing

But it is worth it

Every tear

Every missed call


My heart feels it will burst

This could only mean one thing

That the love I carry

Is not too much

Or too heavy

But hungers to reach out

And love you up close once again

Love the way the action is captured through the shot.
